The Statistical Best Practices (SBP) 2020 handbook aims to provide the best practices on statistical processes to improve the quality of data produced across the whole-of-government (WOG) in Singapore, particularly among the Research and Statistical Units (RSUs) gazetted under the Statistics Act, so as to instil trust and confidence in the data among the public and policy-makers. The SBP Handbook is benchmarked against various international standards such as the United Nations’ National Quality Assurance Framework and International Monetary Fund’s Data Quality Assessment Framework.
